"We are not afraid today," we sang as we walked. I turned to the person next to me and whispered, "That's a lie."
Resident Aliens at 25
I once actually was a resident alien. I wonder if Hauerwas and Willimon have any clue what it means to occupy that space.
Denigrating "social activist churches" was central to Hauerwas and Willimon's agenda. Yet Resident Aliens revived social gospel arguments.
It is disingenuous to deem ourselves alien to a culture and society we benefit from—a culture and society we created.
The image of a resident alien offers an important biblical corrective. But it isn't the only such image we need.
